Contest Data Collection For Radio Made Easy
GERMANTOWN, Maryland (October 8, 1998)
What is ContestTrak?
ContestTrak is a web-based system where your listeners can
visit and sign up for contests. This system functions as a
regular website where visitors can enter their name, address,
e-mail address and answer other demographic questions. Once
they submit their information, it is added to a database. From
this database, you can pick random winners, all with the click
of the mouse button. This unique contest entry system cuts
down on data entry time from faxed in, mailed in and phoned in
contest entries. Studies show that an ever-increasing segment
of the population is using the World Wide Web, and ContestTrak
allows you to take advantage of this powerful new medium.
What Else Can It Do?
ContestTrak collects all the submitted information in a
Microsoft Access database. This database can be browsed online
or downloaded and used for mass mailings and statistics
generation for demographics and listening habits. Levelbest
Communications can develop custom Access reports that can be
run from your own computer. As well, ContestTrak can be
configured to produce mass electronic mailings to everyone who
signs up with a valid e-mail address.
Is There Any Other Use?
Certainly. Add the SurveyTrak module and allow visitors to
your site to vote on current hot topics. SurveyTrak can also
be configured to collect information from online "Listener
Advisory Boards" that can allow input directly from the
listeners on their impression of your station. Advertise
online surveys on the air and announce the results of the
surveys on the air.
How Does It Work?
Okay, time for the technobabble. ContestTrak and SurveyTrak
are built with Active Server Pages. This new exciting active
technology is breaking down the technological limitations
previously encountered on the web. The system is hosted on a
web server running Windows NT Server 4.0 and can be viewed
with any web browser.

have to add that the database is working great. It has
always been a struggle, trying to find a way to log
listeners names and vital information without paying a huge

and efficient. Thanks for everything."
